World - Libyan city Benghazi plunges into darkness as fighting hits power plants

By Ayman al-Warfalli BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Libya`s eastern city of Benghazi has been plunged into darkness as clashes between pro-government forces and Islamist fighters have knocked out three of five power stations serving the city, the country`s second largest, officials said on Monday. Power has been off for 16 hours a day in the port city where forces loyal to the official government based in the east have been fighting Islamist groups for 15 months in a battle that has turned parts of Benghazi into ruins. A spokesman at state power firm GECOL in Benghazi said output at the gas-fired main power plant was still stable at 650 megawatts on average a day, but three sub-stations distributing electricity inside the city had been damaged.

World - Gambling firm GVC raises offer to $1.6 billion for rival

By Aastha Agnihotri and Neil Maidment LONDON (Reuters) - Online gambling firm GVC Holdings returned on Monday with a new 1 billion-pound ($1.55 billion) bid for rival Digital Entertainment , looking to trump a recently accepted offer from 888 . Bwin, put up for sale last year, accepted a cash and stock deal worth almost 900 million pounds from online casino and poker firm 888 this month, shunning an earlier 908-million-pound offer from GVC and Canada`s Amaya Inc , which it deemed too complex and with less attractive growth prospects. The tussle for Bwin is the latest in a flurry of merger activity in the industry, a trend likely to continue as firms seek to expand to offset increasing taxes and tighter regulation in Britain.
